The Runaway

Real Glass Heart


Lyrics

"The Runaway"

You can live your whole life feeling so blind
You never ask why
You could not find the answer
I feel like an old dog chasing tail lights
The future is bright
But damned if I can catch her

You can leave it in drive
Or put your feet to the road
If the grin across your face says “come catch the show”
Then there’s the Runaway – making her way back home

There’s an old clock ticking in the doorway
My hands wanna change
The hands that count the hours
Then it sinks in slow that it’s high time
To call it a night now
Cuz it’s the morning after

You can leave it in drive
Or put your feet to the road
If the grin across your face says “come catch the show”
Then there’s the Runaway – making her way back home

Joan of Arc couldn’t bend this highway
The wind may blow but it won’t blow my way
Joan of Arc couldn’t bend this highway
The wind may blow but it won’t blow my way
May blow but it won’t blow my way
Ooh may blow but it
